India vs England 2022, fifth Test: KL Rahul missing out is a massive setback for India, says Sanjay Manjrekar | Cricket News – Times of India

MUMBAI: One of the most crucial aspects for India gaining a 2-1 lead in the 2021 Test series against England before the fifth and final Test was rescheduled for July this year due to fears of Covid-19 outbreak in the visitors' camp was the runs from openers KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma. Sharma was India's top run-getter, amassing 368 runs in four matches, including a fine 127 in the second innings of the fourth Test at The Oval apart from fifties at Lord's and Headingley. Rahul, on the other hand, made 315 runs with a stunning 129 in the first innings at Lord's, becoming one of the main architects for a famous victory. But this time, while Sharma is returning to England with captaincy duties on his shoulders, Rahul is unavailable for the Edgbaston Test due to a right groin injury, which me...

LEEDS (England): England Test captain Ben Stokes has challenged his team to play without fear and put on a show against New Zealand at Headingley despite taking an unassailable 2-0 lead into the final match of the three-match series.

LEEDS (United Kingdom): Jamie Overton will make his England Test debut in the third and final match of the New Zealand series at Headingley, captain Ben Stokes announced Wednesday. Overton replaces fellow paceman James Anderson after England's all-time leading Test wicket-taker was ruled out with an ankle injury. England have an unassailable 2-0 lead against the world Test champions, following five-wicket wins at Lord's and Trent Bridge.

India’s squad for Ireland may play England T20I series too | Cricket News – Times of India

MUMBAI: India are likely to retain the squad for the two-match Ireland tour for the three-match T20I series in England, TOI has learnt. Led by all-rounder Hardik Pandya, Team India will play two T20Is on June 26 and June 28 in Dublin. "The rescheduled fifth Test between India and England is supposed to be held in Birmingham from July 1-5, while the first T20I of the England series will take place only two days later, on July 7 at the Ageas Bowl in Southampton. It will be difficult for the players involved in the Test to switch to the T20Is at such a short notice. In such a scenario, the squad picked for the two-T20Is in Ireland has been asked to go to England after that short series, since that outfit will be in T20 mode.

McCullum has England ‘running towards the danger’: Stuart Broad | Cricket News – Times of India

LONDON: Stuart Broad says England coach Brendon McCullum inspired the dramatic second Test victory against New Zealand by telling his team to "run towards the danger". McCullum has revitalised England in union with new captain Ben Stokes and the improvement generated by the fresh regime's positive attitude has been remarkable. England had failed to win any of their previous five Test series, winning just one match from 17 prior to the current New Zealand contest. But after beating the Test world champions by five wickets for a second successive match, England will head to Headingley next week looking to complete a clean sweep. Just a year ago, England, under the guidance of then coach Chris Silverwood, settled for a draw after refusing to take on a target of 273 in 75 overs against New ...

2nd Test: England fined for slow over rate in win over New Zealand | Cricket News – Times of India

England have been fined 40% of their match fee and docked two ICC World Test Championship points for maintaining a slow over rate in their win over New Zealand in the second Test at Trent Bridge, the governing body ICC said on Wednesday. England chased 299 in 50 overs on the final day of the Test to win by five wickets and clinch the three-match series against the reigning world Test champions. Ben Stokes' side were ruled to be two overs short of the target after time allowances were taken into consideration, with match referee Richie Richardson imposing the sanction. "England captain Ben Stokes plead guilty to the offence and accepted the proposed sanction, so there was no need for a formal hearing," the ICC said in a statement. England are second-bottom in the World Test Championship ...

2nd Test: Bairstow, Stokes star as England beat New Zealand by five wickets to win series | Cricket News – Times of India

NOTTINGHAM: Jonny Bairstow blasted England to a five-wicket win over New Zealand on the final day of the second Test at Trent Bridge on Tuesday as the home side won a series for the first time since January 2021. England chased down 299 thanks to an all-time great display of raw power from Bairstow, who took just 77 balls to reach the ninth Test century of his career. Bairstow narrowly missed hitting England's fastest Test hundred, taking one more delivery than Gilbert Jessop, who scored a 76-ball ton against Australia in 1902. While Bairstow could not earn a place in the history books, that will be a footnote for the 32-year-old, whose display will be remembered forever by all those who witnessed it.

2nd Test: Root, Pope centuries fuel England fightback against New Zealand | Cricket News – Times of India

NOTTINGHAM (United Kingdom): Joe Root swaggered to a majestic 163 not out and Ollie Pope hit his highest Test score of 145 as rampant England reached 473-5 against New Zealand at close of play on the third day of the second Test. Replying to New Zealand's mammoth first innings score of 553, Root and Pope took full advantage of a docile pitch with a blistering run-spree at Trent Bridge on Sunday. Thanks to the pair's commanding displays, England are in position to match or pass New Zealand's total in a Test that could be destined for a high-scoring draw with two days left. Freed of the oppressive shackles of the England captaincy after handing the role to Stokes earlier this year, Root was in vibrant mood as he unfurled his full array of strokes in his 27th Test century.

England vs New Zealand, 2nd Test: No double hundred, no problem for New Zealand’s Daryl Mitchell | Cricket News – Times of India

NOTTINGHAM: New Zealand's Daryl Mitchell said he has no regrets after falling agonisingly short of a maiden Test double hundred in the second match against England. The middle-order batsman fell after a career-best 190, and his 236-run collaboration with fellow centurion Tom Blundell was the bedrock of New Zealand's robust first innings total of 553 at Trent Bridge. England seamer Matthew Potts denied Mitchell his double hundred by dismissing the number five batsman with a wide, slower delivery. "To be honest, a double-hundred personally doesn't mean a hell of a lot," Mitchell told reporters after second day's play at Trent Bridge. "It was just nice to contribute to a score that can help us win a Test match," he said. "Anything over a hundred's pretty good, so I was just trying to do a ...

England vs New Zealand, 2nd Test: Hosts eye series win for Ben Stokes and Brendon McCullum | Cricket News – Times of India

LONDON: England will aim to carry on from where they left off under their new leadership duo of captain Ben Stokes and coach Brendon McCullum, the former New Zealand skipper, when they face the Black Caps in the second Test in Nottingham starting Friday.
